The idea of building this gate is linked with the old city gates of Jaipur.
The Pink City is a potpourri of cultural marvels and each nook of this touristy city, is oozing with snippets of vivid heritage of the bygone past. Over the years, Jaipur has become one of the most-visited places in India, as clans of photographers from all over the world have come in here to capture its stories and charms. This has surely piqued curiosity amidst people who've been bit by the wanderlust bug and now, Jaipur is on almost everyone's bucket list. So in the process of curating your travel itinerary of this city, do not forget to jot down the name of the iconic Patrika Gate.

Built by the Patrika Group of Newspapers along side the Jawaharlal Nehru Marg, the Patrika Gate is a gateway to the Jawahar Circle Park. This spot again, is the largest circular park in Asia located on a traffic signal! This gate is aimed at bringing together the art, craft and cultural heritage of the state of Rajasthan, all under one roof. This monument adds a burst of colours to this locale and speaks volumes of the traditions which ties this city together. Just last week, this gate was formally inaugurated by the PM of India in a virtual conference, although this gate has been accessible by the public since a long time now.
